"Daylight Robbery" as written by and Imogen Jennifer Heap....
Don't mind me, just cruising by
By the girl with the balloon
Good, it looks like we're the only ones around
Caught on C-C-T-V
Heading towards the city light
Winking diamonds at me
Arms stretched out now

It gets me every time
It gets me every time

Happiness and silhouettes
Revolving in the deep water indigo
It's high tide
Pleasure moment
Thinking big
Thinking positive
And itching to get on with it
It's all stops out

Excess
Is the new moderation
Get dressed up
To the power of ten
Raise glasses
On repeat and again again again
Again again again again again again

It gets me every time
It gets me every time

Wade the sonic joy
Pleasure the wave and synchronize
Sway in the sonic joy

It gets me every time
It gets me every time

Every time
It gets me right here
Every time
It gets me right here
Every time

    General CommentIt could indeed literally be about a daylight robbery (The "CCTV" part especially points to this), and she's just describing the rush she gets when she's in the middle of it.

    General Commenti saw her live with kid beyond and levi weaver and it was an encore, so they all left the stage and suddenly came back with sunglasses, and it sounded amazing because it had the guy from frou frou on bass, a beat boxer for a percussion sound and levi weaver on guitar. it was amazing.


    i think its about just pure excitement. the first verse seems like an actual daylight robbery but the second verse just sounds like fun in general.

    aaahhhh i love this song

    General CommentOh, actually I think I remember in an interview that the song was basically her feelings while she was night bicycle riding in London.

    General CommentI always interpreted this as just the ecstasy of doing something stupid and getting an adrenaline rush off of it, and it reminds me of Times Square at night with so much going on that it completely floors you.

    General Commentshe always succumbs to the temptation (of him), her positive thinking gets her everytime.
    OR... on second thought...
    maybe its about the lime light... and being a celebrity. "winking diamonds" could be a metaphor for flash photograph. "arms stretched out" people who want her, like in a concert. The whole 4th paragraph seems to be about the idea of clubbing, partying, celebrating, and going out.
    but... yet the line "it gets me everytime" seems to make me still thnk shes dissapointed in herself for falling for it....

    General CommentI can see it being about going out and just enjoying herself but that's probably just me.

    General Commentan amazing theatre company called "frantic assembly" used a lot of imogen's music for a production called "pool (no water)" & in it this song was used for a physical sequence where the cast were on a high from taking numerous drugs in order to escape from the pain/reality of a situation they were in... it definitely fitted the song well.

    General Commentunlike a lot of her other songs i think this song is just about enjoying herself and not worrying about relationships and enjoying her own music and kind of about performing and being famous "caught on CCTV" thats just the way it somes across to me
    one of my favorites she is amazing and has the most amazing range ever!
